Wow, that's some convincing wood grain! Recipe? I think the biggest thing here is contrast, if you want some criticism. In some areas you've got smooth, good highlights, but I see little shading also. The paint consistency looks good, as does the brush control, but a little shading will go a long way. That being said, I really like him, he has a lot of character!

This is pretty sweet. How long have you been painting? You seem to have all the skills. The color choices are excellent and I have to agree with demonelf3 that the wood grain is fantastic. I also agree that in some areas, mostly the fabric, you could use a little more shading, but maybe its the photo. My contrasts seem to disappear in photographs so it could happen here to. Over all though, this is a great piece. Keep it up and keep posting your work.

Thanks for the comments guys.

 

The wood grain is Calthan brown, with a wash of Gryphonne sepia, then a wash of badab black, then a very very very thinned down gretchin green wash, followed by some highlights with Khemri brown. Glad you like it ::D:

 

As far as the contrasts... this seems to be the most difficult part of painting for me, I could probably go a bit darker in my shadows

 

I have been painting for probably a little over 5 years now. Got a group of Warlord players so I wandered over here to the forums and lurked for awhile. Glad to get so much feed back so quickly.

 

Thanks again I will try to update as I go with this guy.
